Notes: Where to begin with this one? Well, we've got some orchestral progressive rock here and for every wonderful musical moment there's a complimentary moment of confusion and wonder as to what drove him to record this or that particular track. And to cap it off there's an interesting version of the old tune "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" from the Animals songbook. And Chris Spedding on guitar is a nice bonus. Interesting cover painting as well.
